Midnight at the Jazz Cafe

Aloha, Curt, I received your CD in the mail yesterday and it is just great!! WOW!! It is very easy to listen to and your guitar is simply superb!!. Just a neat swinging selection of songs without getting too "complicated" like some performers tend to do. Keep up the great work and hope you have more projects in the future. Good luck and keep swinging!   Sincerely, Dave Alama

I finally got around to listen to your CD and I want you to know how much I like it. I just had to plow through about a dozen "smooth jazz: CD's and I though I was going to barf. I really appreciate how and what you play! — Roger Sadowsky, Sadowsky Guitars Ltd.

I received the CD and picks a couple of days ago. And thanks for including a few extra picks. I've really enjoyed listening tothe CD -- your sound is very pure and clear, and your arrangements are wonderful. — Tom Bloomfield (Derry, NH)

Hi Curt. I really enjoyed checking out your websites. Nice contribution to the jazz guitar community! I checked out your soundbites. "Shadow of Your Smile" sounds reminiscent of early Johnny Smith (one of my favorites). — Mike DeMicco

I stumbled on your website at and listened to your demo cuts from "Jazz At the Midnight Cafe". You blew me away. Your style is my absolute favorite for listening (and playing). Great stuff!! — Jim Weller

Received your CD just prior to leaving on a trip last week. Listened to it for 600 miles. Please keep me in mind should you EVER do another one of jazz standards. The only thing I'm sorry about is that I don't live close enough to come see you play live or to get lessons from you.

Also thanks for the picks. I've never used that style of pick before, but find that the notes come easier and sound better when using them. They took a bit of getting used to, but now they're all I use.

Best of luck to you. You're a great player. — Jim Weller

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee

Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
